    Interview

    Beware of intern scam. Never hand out your info if you are uncomfortable. I found job on internships.com they will promise you wonderful pay and great hours. But really think on what they are promising. If you are just starting out do you really think you are going to make $25 an hour?

    The interview process was a three step process. This included interviews with the supervisor, personnel from the business unit for support as well as the SCM manager. After interviewing, I was contacted a few days later and presented with an offer letter. The offer letter was contingent upon my passing a drug test.

    Interview

    All hiring was done through the career website portal, however, there were contacts within the company that were avaliable to help (especially to get resumes to them close to the interview process. Interviewers were very nice (panel of 3) and came to our school to interview. The interview started with them talking about themselves, which was interesting, and was relatively informal to start. Questions began with general ones related to resume and moved to others related to the culture of the workplace (these really showed the focus of the company).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Suncor (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Preliminary Video Interview and Hogan based Personality inventory, Personality and Deductive reasoning test. Personality interview is focused on standard psychometric testing.
    The deductive reasoning was more based on application of basic discrete mathematics and basic algebra, not difficult but the amount of time given per question was very short, so if your skills are rusty, you will struggle to complete the test. Having previous training with systems programming will make it easier to complete.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Suncor (Calgary, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email for digital interview ( HireVue) within a week of applying. The digital interview had typical behavioural questions like what is your favourite or least favourite course, what skills can you bring etc. Then after 2 days got email asking to do assessments, which took about 1hr 30mins. The assessments test your personality and math skills. Within two week time period I got in person interview, where two people (one from HR and one from engineering department) interviewed me. The interviewers were extremely friendly and asked typical behavioural questions. One thing I loved about Suncor was they were extremely quick with their whole process.
